ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems are now the backbone of the information systems in many commercial companies and public sector organisations. The intended benefits of these systems are well known (coping with the fragmentation of former information systems, providing functional integration and supporting best practices for instance). Yet, their implementation in a company is still a traumatising project, with these difficulties being reported in many articles and books explaining reasons for failure, listing conditions of success, or suggesting project management methods aimed at improving their implementation.
